Boyfriend Goes Crazy After Promising Friends Ate “Too Much” At His Family’s Christmas Dinner

Ah, family Christmas dinner. Everything smells like gingerbread, there is a fireplace that exudes that pleasant warmth, and a dozen dishes ready to stuff you like a Thanksgiving turkey. What could go wrong?


For many of us, having dinner with our partner’s parents is fun. real trial by fire… It doesn’t matter how beautiful you are or that you have better table manners than Queen Elizabeth herself (four kinds of spoons? No problem!), There will always be something that you won’t be ready for.

As a user TheOA12345 shares her story full of plot twists, everything seemed perfect, and her first Christmas dinner with her boyfriend’s parents – very at first it is important – okay, until it suddenly becomes.


Growing up to eat as much as your belly can fill, so as not to show disrespect to the owner, the author of the story filled her plate and was in time for a second at the prompting of the hostess. How then can you say no to a cup of coffee and a slice of cheesecake, right?

To catch a suspicious glance of your significant other during dinner, they yell at her and even call her fat for lack of manners. long away how the author intended to end this special night. Little did she know, however, that Arabic dining etiquette was very specific to what she was accustomed to. Did you know that visiting a guest house on an empty stomach is a sign of disrespect in Arab culture? Well, we didn’t. The author of the story did not know either, who was not warned about any of this, and then was accused of lack of general knowledge.


As with most of the thorny and complex Am I The A-Hole cases worthy of Dr. Phil’s expertise, the woman turned to a reliable subreddit to see if she had accidentally underestimated her partner’s culture. Indeed which pushed things away. So buckle up, readers, and scroll down to read the full story.

The general opinion was rather (and rightly) one-sided.

Some users even called the guy’s bluff

Believe it or not, good old Reddit helped save the day again. A week after her original post, the author, having received almost 4 thousand suggestions and opinions, decided to try some of them and wrote continuation of a story

After a few quick messages, she finally caught up with his lie – everything had changed. It turns out that the whole fiasco was due to the fact that she got confused in translation (he did not want to call her “fat”, but only “greedy” if that is better) and her partner’s touching mission of cover-up. His loved ones seem to have some financial problems and he just chose not to share the burden of his family’s dire situation. Especially before their first Christmas dinner together.

The intention is great. Execution? Not so much.

After a week of radio silence, the author posted an updated version of her story.

After getting the evidence she needed, it was time to find out what her boyfriend had to say about this.
